Notes

Comments:

The splices in d1t08 (LLR) and d2t05 (drums) are very minor. There may also
be a splice in d3t07, but I'm not sure. The start Of d3t07 NFA is a little
abrupt but if you listen to the chant behind the music it seems to flow.
At any rate if it is a spice it too is minor.

As this is a taper's section recording you do hear the ambience of the room.
But don't let that deter you from downloading this show. It sort of adds
an element of the "you are there" effect and besides that, the music is on
fire from start to end. Tons of energy and musically spot on!!!!

Subject: My first show
I didn't know the music yet. I had no idea what to expect. It all runs together now, a weird and wonderful kaleidoscope--I have no clear memories of that night. Except one: after the encore, the crowd took up the clap, chap-clap, YOU KNOW OUR LOVE WILL NOT FADE AWAY! chant again. Out of the hall, down the street, into the BART station, I was surrounded by all these people still clapping and singing.

And you know what? It hasn't faded away.

Thanks for sharing this.

Although this show sounds like you're sitting in the cheap seats, it works. Nice quality although not FOB. I was dripping wet after this show and shaking my head. Tons of energy and a thundering but short other one with a spooky beginning. Lots of highlights - Bertha's jam going at record speed and Jerry's bouncing around the rafters like a ping pong ball. Great stuff.

What IowaNic said

Charlie Connor (a friend) was really a recording wizard with standard equipment.

Great fun indeed

Subject: great show and recording
This is a great recording--really captures the energy of the crowd, the warmth of the room, and the quality of the music. As good an audience recording as you'll ever hear.

And the music is totally killer. These shows were billed as the 20th anniversary of the Acid Tests, and there was a light and video show that set quite the psychedelic mode. They had some of the same stuff at that year's New Years shows, but Kaiser is so much smaller than the Coliseum that it was much more effective at Kaiser. The Help-Slip-Franklin's-Playin' stretch is totally tripped out, Jerry's in very good form. And you can hear just how into it the crowd was--the audience basically kicked off Help On the Way.

Highly, highly recommended.
